Shoulder and arm rolling by A.B. Phelan

ABOUT THIS COLLECTION  

American author Harrie Irving Hancock believed “correct carriage and wide-awake, impressive appearance” were the keys to success and could be produced with proper physical exercises. Each illustration is carefully photographed to make “every movement plain to the beholder,” wrote Hancock, adding that the practitioner will achieve “masculine poise” in the way he “walks, talks, and meets others.” Forgotten today, the enormously prolific Hancock wrote mostly boy’s adventure tales.
